Thoughts:  There is some obvious Oscar predicting going on here, and yet with the few awards we've seen so far, these are pretty original, right?  They went for a 12 Years a Slave sweep, predicting the possible Oscar sway and even went as far as to award the two frontrunners in Animated Film a tie!  That being said, their Top Ten is a pretty inspired mix of Oscar bait and populist choices.  Spring Breakers!  I like this.

  1. These are Oscar-type awards, but I love 'em. I only need to see 5 of these.
